Elizabeth Hale

Great properties...well looked after.....reasonable priced rent. Thank you


Bobby Scaife

I had a fantastic time in your properties!


Will Hopewell

I really enjoyed living in one of your houses and kept it tidy...I think we even donated a pool table.



Was with Carlain for my second and third year of university in two different properties and can't fault them - great landlords, always very friendly and attentive to problems. Thanks for everything Carlain!


Sami Blom

Thanks for everything. It was a pleasure staying in one of your houses. I'll make sure to recommend Carlain to the next students who are going to Cheltenham.


Joshua Duffy

I lived at 38 Courtenay Street back in 2014/15 and I found Nick and his team were extremely helpful and always there when we needed anything sorted at the house. The rent was very reasonable, couldn't wish for a better landlord whilst at Uni.



Many thanks for being such a great landlord during our stay at 184 Iffley Rd. Charlotte and the girls



Great landlords, always responded to our needs and queries quickly.



Provided a very pleasant living experience throughout. Any problems were addressed promptly, we were informed of visits in plenty of time, and Carlain were very easily contactable if we had any questions. The property was incredible value for Oxford, and the inclusive bills save a lot of hassle!


Sean hall

Absolutely no problems with my landlords over the 2 years of being with them. Every time we had a problem to be fixed or just general maintenance it was done within 2-3 days of first contacting them. Even when we were moving house between our 2 tenancies they made sure we didn't go homeless and put us first. I'd definitely reccomend to any student to take up tenancies with Carlain as they won't get a better/easier living accommodation. With all bills paid within a reasonable monthly rent it just made our lives easy with just the one payment per month or every term. Finally not to forget the Carlain party and how good it is every year!!



I really enjoyed living here and thanks a million Nick for all your help and kindness in the last years!


James Kidd

I am a young professional who lived in a Carlain property for 10 months. Everyone at the company was very helpful and dis everything this could to make the move easy. During my time there any maintainance issues were resolved quickly so that no inconvince was caused. I would fully recommend Carlain properties to anyone looking for accommodation in any of the areas they operate.


Edward Ziubrzynski

<p>Stayed with Carlain for the two years of university following halls, very nice bunch and they never felt like landlords in the typical sense! Very warm and friendly people with great houses to match! </p>


David Adams

<p>Been with Carlain for two years in two different houses. Very quick to respond to email and all members of the team were very helpful across the two years. Also, they throw one hell of a tennants party!!</p>



<p>The whole Carlain Property team are an amazing bunch and are always around to help! Living in two of their properties you know that they care about every student, every property was perfect when you moved in. Couldn't of asked for better Landlords to have whilst at University and will be sad to leave them! Thank you Carlain!</p>


Jessica Murphy

Nick, Kate, and those at Carlain Property truly care about the comfort and the quality of life of their tenants. They are good and fair landlords who are very accomodating and pleasant to deal with, be it in person or by email. I would recommend that anyone who is looking for a flat in Oxford seek out a Carlain Property place.


Gregory Phipps

We rented from Carlain during a 10-month stay in Oxford and never regretted it. The apartment was clean when we moved in and well maintained throughout, and Nick was very good at responding to emails and addressing concerns in a timely manner.


Laura Macfarlane

We rented from Carlain property in our final year of univerify, I only wish we'd gone with them sooner! They were easy to contact and quick to respond to any queries or problems. Would recommend them to any student in Oxford looking for a house!


Molly Williams

Great property that we rented in Oxford for a year and if we were to stay longer we would of definitely gone with Carlian Property! Amazing landlords! Can contact at all times through phone and email. If somthing needed to be done it would be sorted ASAP! They were just great! Highly recommend!


Nicholas Alexander

Lived in one of their properties for 1 year and was absolutely great. Was helpful with every strange request we ever had. Was highly recommended living in one of their properties!


Christie Dawson

To Nick, Kate, Andy, Aaron, Kathyrn and the rest of the Carlain Team, Thank you all for everything over the last two years! You have been a great team/landlords/managers and I would recommend you to anyone! Best wishes Christy Dawson


Chloe Smith

Quick to respond to any repairs that need doing, or to any questions that you have. I found them useful and it was very straightforward to become a tenant within one of their properties.


Nadia sheikh

UOG recommended Carlain property for me and my house mates which I'm grateful for as they made a lot less complicated to sign up for a house. Thanks for everything Carlain 45 MHP will be missed !!


Eden Skidmore

Carlain Property was a pleasure to rent from. From the very beginning I found the staff really helpful and they were quick to help and resolve any issues I had. The house was very spacious and well kept and we were provided with everything we would need to live comfortably. I would definitely rent from them again and would recommend them to other students.



we rented off Carlain for our final year of university (we should have rented a house off them from the start!) and we couldn't be happier with the service they provided. The house was very nice and it was situated in an upmarket part of Cheltenham which was nice to live in. if any issues with the house or appliances occurred we would contact the Carlain team and it would be fixed within 2-3 days and any money spent elsewhere (washing your clothes at a launderette) was rembursed upon showing a receipt. the team were friendly and always easy to reach. I would highly reccommend renting off Carlain, as they are the best rental agency for students in Cheltenham.



Great property agent! The team is always there when you need them and great support when looking for new properties. Plus the yearly Carlain party is amazing, who wouldnt want all you can drink beer?!



I Lived with Carlain durimg my time at university. They were amazing landlords and were always on hand when you needed them. Any problem and they sort something out as soon as they could. I Would definitely recommend these guys ... You can't get better student accommodation and service like this!


Michael Macdonald

Nick and the team at Carlain Property are excellent landlords that provide an exceptional level of service. They are friendly, efficient, always quick to sort out any issues (such as maintenance requirements) as well as taking care of matters such as wifi provision, bills and gardening. A pleasure to have lived in one of their properties.


Emma Lewis

I rented the house at 184 Iffley road in Oxford which was brilliant. All of the rooms are generously proportioned and furnished to a very high standard. Its multiple kitchens and well-designed living space meant that the house easily accommodated eight people. Likewise, it is located in the heart of the Cowley/Iffley area and therefore ideally close to all local ammenities as well as the town centre. Nick the landlord was very approachable and always quick to respond our questions and requests. All in all, a faultless rental experience. Carlain property is streets ahead of the rest of the Oxford student rental market.


Gareth Fortey

I dont think my third year would have been what it was if I had been with a different letting agency. Carlain are fair, and my house was tidy and large. Would definitely recommend.


Alastair Warren

Living in Carlain houses has been a pleasure. I lived in two different Carlain properties during my time at uni and loved both of them. The Carlain team are always happy to help you find a house to fit your situation whether you're in a group or looking for a room alone. Any maintenance problems in the house have always been dealt with quickly, generally the same day or the next. The free annual move in party held at the frog and fiddle (with open bar) is fantastic and should not be missed. Cheers guys.


Alicia Bowater

I rented a property from Carlain for a year and would highly recommend them as landlords. Any problems we had with the house were fixed extremely quickly, and in nearly all situations, someone came round the same day. The house was furnished and decorated to a high standard. If I hadnt finished my degree I would definitely still be renting from them.


Mitchell Ward

Very good service. Often fast with problems and reliable.


Lucy heywood

Amazing experience and couldnt fault it. No problems at all. Loved every minute of it



Just spent my last year in a Carlain Property in Marle Hill Parade. Lovely house, friendly landlords and any issues fixed quickly. Would recommend Carlain to other students.



I have been with Carlain for 2 years and they have been great landlords. They understand that you are students and solve issues quickly if you report them. They helped me out loads... Really good landlords


Fabienne Green

There were 5 sports therapists and 1 sport education in our house for our 3rd year and we had a great time in 45 Gloucester Road house. Any issues we had with the house they were sorted by either Kate, Nick or plumbers etc very quickly and with minimal fuss. I would recommend this house to any students whether your campus is oxstalls or a Cheltenham campus, it was very easy to get to Gloucester every morning (as long as you didnt hit rush hour either end of the day).



Brilliant landlords, if anything went wrong (which wasnt much) they were there very quickly to help. The house was In a great condition when we moved in and the property was a really really good size. Had the best year living there, and we got the whole deposit back.



Just spent my last year in a Carlain Property in Marle Hill Parade. Excellent accommodation, landlords very friendly and easy to communicate with. Would recommend this company to students looking for quality accommodation.


Thomas Dunn

Very good landlords. Everything I would expect from a tenancy. The property was a high standard and issues were addressed promptly . The Carlain party was a good bonus too. Best landlords I have had to date.


Aidan Shearer

It was a pleasure staying with Carlain this year. Great Landlords who were willing to fix any problems within days.


David Hails

I have been with Carlain throughout three years of University and it has been great. Nick, Andy, Kate and the rest of the team are always on hand should you have any problems or queries. The houses they provide are in excellent condition and I would highly recommend Carlain when looking for student accommodation in Cheltenham.


Scott King

Amazing landlords. Any problems we had we were always sorted ASAP. The quality of houses was also so much nicer than a lot of others we saw. We spent 2 years with them and both times couldnt fault it. And the Carlain tenants party doesnt hurt either.


Bradley West

Very pleased with the Carlain tenancy 2014/15. Any issues we encountered were generally dealt with very fast. E.g. replacement of broken bed with a brand new (and better) bed at the start of the tenancy. The annual Carlain Tenants Party was fantastic, as were the crates of beer delivered to the house as a thank you for keeping the house clean for viewings during the year. Carlain team always friendly and I wouldnt hesitate taking out a future tenancy with them or advising others to do the same.


Hollie Cotgrave

Where do I start? I have rented with Carlain Property for just over 3 years, two of which were during my degree and the other as a professional in my graduate year after Uni. With accommodation to suit both large and small friendship groups, they truly trump any other student lets out there. Not only were their houses furnished to outstanding quality (even pots and pans included folks), but their attentiveness when it came to repairs or problems, no matter how big or small, was fantastic. As you can imagine, by remaining a client for some time with Carlain I have built a good rapport with their team, in particular Nick and Kate. Both have always gave outstanding service to myself and past housemates showing they are truly passionate about their job. With extra touches like Christmas cards to Tenants parties they really do make you feel welcome so I would like to thank them for all they have done for me over the years. Each house I stayed in were situated in great locations with equal distance to both town and University. Their rent was also highly competitive compared to other student lets as they used a one bill system keeping arguments at bay between housemates for having to split those pesky bills. Not only was this the case for my time at University, but during my graduate year they were again very competitive with other lets on the market, offering me a room in a newly furnished house and very good deal to remain with them as a professional. So, calling all students... What are you waiting for?? Fantastic houses, friendly faces and competitive rent prices; I cannot rate these guys highly enough. I would strongly recommend any students in the Chelts and Glos area to get in touch with Carlain Property to complete their University experience. Hollie :)


Jamie Ford

Great year living in with Carlain Property providing us with Unlimited 50mbps Broadband and a Virgin TV package, it really made the year flyby and help with University work with a quick connection to the internet. Had fun living in a large house in Cheltenham with only a short walk to town with access to local buses just down the road and a 10 minute journey to University, it was very convenient. Good value and less hassle than dealing with bills yourself, Carlain really put that all off your mind, instead you can focus on work at hand. Jamie


Jack knight

Carlain property were awesome, much better than previous landlords. House was great to live and in a ideal location. If there was ever any problems there was someone out to fix it within a day or two which was often without effecting us tenants at all. The house was awesome 6 big rooms compared to previous houses. Our house at Gloucester Road had a lovely kitchen with cooking utensils and Crockery all provided and a great living area in the basement which was great for us boys to chill out play Xbox, watch the football and throw the occasional get together. Would recommend Carlain as landlords highly as they communicate with tenants easily and any problems are sorted straight away.


James Russell

Fantastic landlords, very professional and responsive. Highly recommended.


Charley Keen

Absolutely amazing landlords - beautiful house - no corners cut - perfect!!


Jean Petreschi

Thank you very much and thanks again for letting us stay in your lovely home. Kind regards, Jean Petreschi (167 Iffley Road)


Sue Hill

To Nick and Staff at Carlain Many thanks for the Deposit return which I noticed on my bank statement. Thanks for being a great student landlord, looking after them all in Cheltenham. We have been very impressed with the service you offer and Lucy had an enjoyable few years in Cheltenham. Best wishes Sue Hill (Lucy’s Mum)


Britney Bear

I lived in a Carlain Property for one year with six friends and we had a great experience. The pricing was competitive, the location was perfect, and any problems were addressed quickly. I could not ask for more and I would highly recommend Carlain Property to any of my friends.


Chessa Williams

Had a great time here, the house was great and well looked after. Any issues Kate or Nick were always straight round to help or replace things that broke along the way. Having all bills sorted for us made it so easy to move in and get straight on with uni life. :)



We spent our third year living at 47 Portland Square, Nick and Kate were always very helpful and reasonable any time we had any issues or requests. All interactions with them were very friendly and relaxed. Overall a very pleasant renting experience, would recommend.



I would definitely recommend carlain property. Everything being included in the rent makes payments much easier. Any problems with the house I would just text Nick or Kate and they would come fix it asap. The tenants party with a free bar is an added bonus!


Claire Thorp

I stayed in one of Carlain Property's houses for 2 years and could not have asked for a better student house for the money that I paid. If there was ever a problem with something in the house you could call Nick or Kate and know that they would be there that day or as soon as possible to deal with what ever the issue was. If you are a student looking for accommodation, you should not miss out on the chance to stay with Carlain Property; as they are the best in town.



lived in a carlain house for the final two years of my studies and enjoyed every bit of it. The house was great and was in a good condition on our arrival. The best part of living in a carlain property (apart from the housemates of course :)) was the ease of which bills were paid. The single bill system was very student friendly with everything included and the internet connection was good too. Carlain is a great choice for students looking to move into housing for their studies.


Danielle Perry

Carlain Property is ideal for any student looking to rent. They have nice properties, easy applications, and they are all very friendly and approachable. They also arrange a gardener and have plumbers etc for their houses. They are quick to reply and respond if you have any queries or problems. I would highly recommend going with them when looking for a student house.


Liam Stratford

Great Landlords, If ever there was a problem, a handyman was quickly dispatched to fix it. Quality service at 122 Gloucester Road


Owen Harries

Carlain Properties have made the past year really enjoyable. Really nice, easy going and helpful landlords. I would recommend them to anyone.


Dave Richards

Really enjoyed my 2 year stay with Carlain. Very few problems and any small problems that did occur were solved quickly and easily; Also loved the tenants party.


Elliot Nicklin

Carlain property offered a fantastic range of properties based on our requirements and upon finding the right place, it was a simple and seamless process. The pricing is very competitive when considering everything is included with the monthly rental payments. Whenever there was a maintenance issue, queries and repairs were dealt with incredibly swiftly and replacements were always arranged if needed. Their day to day involvement with tenancy was very transparent and non-invasive, but were only an email phone call or text away if needed. Overall the experience with Carlain was exemplary proved by our continued tenancy in the same home for both our second and third years. Cheers


Matthew Belt

Carlain made renting easy and hassle free, I lived in the same house for 2 years with 5 friends. If there was ever a problem all any of us had to do was call or even text Nick or Kate who would then reply and sort out any issues quickly. Great house, great rent price and even better annual tenant party at the frog.


Philip Jones

Lived with Carlian for two years in the same house and they could not have been better landlords, they were always looking to help us in anyway they could and were quick to replace anything in the house that may have been a problem such as our faulty washing machine in our second year of living in the house. The house was very well furnished with modern features and had everything that myself and the other 5 people I lived with could have asked for. I would advise anyone that can to live with Carlain Property!


Steven Dunn

Lived in 31 Marle Hill Parade for 2 years and could not have asked for a better landlord. Everything that went wrong in the house over the two years was swiftly dealt with by Carlain using their own gardeners, electricians etc. Would highly recommend!



We rented with Carlain Property during our 2nd and Fourth years at university, and we were so pleased that we could secure the same house for our fourth year! Have absolutely loved being Carlain Tenants, didn't have any problems and the few maintenance issues that there were, were sorted immediately. Thanks for everything...especially the great Tenant's Party!!



Recently graduated and left the Cheltenham area. Lived in a carlain property for 2 of my 4 years at university and could not have asked for a better landlord. Quick responses to issues, always there if needed and always provided a friendly and efficient service. Would not choose any other company to go with and if had the chance again, I would always choose Carlain Property. I speak on behalf of myself and my housemates - Thank you for a great experience!!



I have enjoyed my stay in Cheltenham in your accommodation and I have always received a very fast reply when I contacted the landlords. Without it I wouldn't have been able to come to England!


Christopher Galvin

Currently in the second year of renting the same house from Carlain, with 5 others. General conditions are very good and the properties are well maintained. They excelled when dealing with my leaving to study in the USA, finding a sub-let etc, for a single semester. This was a large consideration in my decision to leave the country and they were more than accommodating, receiving full rent for every month I was away.



Easy Living!!! I have lived in 3 Carlain houses during my studies. Carlain have proven to make Student living easy and hassle free with an easy sign up service, and quick response team...So much easier to deal with than I had previously experienced with other landlords. Carlain offer an all inclusive rent package - saving my housemates and I from having to arrange tariffs and contracts with Utility providers....allowing us to just be students.


Tom Peters

I lived with Carlain property for my 2nd and 3rd years of uni and they were great. Good quality of housing, only very small problems generally and they were very quick to send someone over to fix something or to order sort out the internet or anything like that. The annual christmas free p1**-up at the Frog and Fiddle is definitely worth going to too.


Sally Taylor

I lived in a six-bedroom Carlain Property house for two out of three of my years at University. It was a nice location - not far from lots of local takeaways and newsagents; We also chose the house because the layout was a bit different (than others houses we viewed when deciding where to live). I've put it at a 4 star rating because we did have problems on and off with heating and the tv, but once it was fixed it was fine :) I felt that our landlord was easy to contact, and that problems, once reported, were mostly sorted out quite quickly (no house is perfect). I also felt we were well informed about things and received house checks and emails throughout the two years. We were all well looked after :)


Jack Paviour

Living in a Carlain property has been a real pleasure. The staff have been reliable and friendly and always give plenty of notice before dropping in unannounced as I had previously experienced within other years of my University studies. It is always reassuring to know, that in an emergency the landlord can be contacted easily and will be able to help so efficiently and quickly either in person, on the phone or by email dependant on the severity of the situation. I would highly recommend this company and hope that everyone who chooses them experiences the same privilege I did throughout their studies.


Alex Edwards

I lived in a Carlain Property for my second year of Uni and we didn't experience any problems. Any slight issues were immediately solved or promptly investigated. We were close to both the university and town centre and hardly ever experienced any street noise, and parking availability was never really an issue. There are electricians, plumbers, gardeners etc. for any problems that may arise and they are always very quick to arrive at the house. Facilities were always in good working order and we never had any problems with heating etc. I would highly recommend living in a Carlain Property as the landlord is both easy to contact and helpful when contacted (not like some horror stories you hear of elusive landlords!)
